The Straw Tower Challenge
In class we had to pick a partner and build a tower that free stood out of limited items: 6 straws, 2 pieces of blutac, a 10 cm long bit of sticky tape and some scissors. And we were not allowed to stick the tower to the floor and use the scissors as part of our tower.
First we did a plan. We did heaps of designs but the one we ended up doing was this one:
I know, it is pretty sweet and all but it was only 47cm! The tallest was Nelson’s and Joey’s which was 97cm tall!!
